We are getting closer to mainstream medicine accepting that autism is caused / associated hy increased serotonin
If you replace "gut problems" with serotonin in this article, it's actually a great read .
The only question that they have to ask now is :" If autism is associated with gut problems , what are gut problems associated with?" (--> serotonin) ,but we will get there

Autism study suggests connection between repetitive behaviors, gut problems: Severity of GI symptoms, other autism symptoms also associated

Weird. This is along the same lines as Parkinson's Disease. As Haidut posted, it may also begin in the gut-

Parkinson Disease (PD) may begin in the gut – To Extract Knowledge from Matter

Is it possible, once again, we are really looking as the same disease, just seeing the effects in differently aged organisms?

Elderly man with Parkinson's Hand Tremor-


Maybe the child's motions are more exaggerated because he has more overall energy available? We have a pretty famous example of someone with Parkinson's in between those two...... Michael J. Fox-



To almost quote a very crass (but oddly acurate) phrase....

Same Serotonin. Different Age Group.

Interesting connection!
The tremor is also present in the animal world. After experiencing traumatic experiences (serotonin involved !) animals start shaking uncontrollably for a short amount of time .
Maybe the tremor is physiological effort to get rid of a trauma ,literally shaking it off . And Parkinson's patients or autistic people are somehow stuck in that mode ?!

Unlikely! I think it's an expression of stress in animals, perhaps they are ready to move instantly and have fast reaction time but when they do not move and are still and their body is still in this readiness and just shake because of all the energy. Don't humans have this too? Isn't this just shaking? Maybe in smaller animals it's more pronounced, but people shake as well under stress, after stress or recovering from stress. Maybe it is something Serotogenic though. Have there been studies on the stress response with inhibited Serotonin release? That'd be interesting.

Another thing. Isn't autism just lax Thyroid function, Serotonin crossing blood-gut barrier and Serotogenic and unhealthy development while in the womb?

Because, at the very least, SSRIs can antagonize certain serotonin receptors, or can "paradoxically" lower serotonin in acute doses, at least according to this study Mauritio posted in a another thread-

Serotonin depletion amplifies distinct human social emotions as a function of individual differences in personality

"Studies of healthy volunteers have primarily employed two techniques to investigate serotonin function: acute tryptophan depletion (ATD), a dietary technique that temporarily lowers brain serotonin levels by depleting its biosynthetic precursor, tryptophan (Bel & Artigas 1996; Biggio et al. 1974; Crockett et al. 2012a; Hood et al. 2005; Nishizawa et al. 1997), and treatment with single doses of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). SSRIs are generally assumed to increase extracellular serotonin, however it should be noted that single rather than chronic doses can paradoxically decrease serotonin in projection areas (Cools et al. 2008; Nord et al. 2013). ATD studies have revealed disinhibition of retaliatory behaviour in the face of perceived injustice (Crockett et al. 2008), modelled using the Ultimatum Game (UG) which is defined in Figure 1, whilst single dose SSRI has had pro-social effects (Crockett et al. 2010a)."

Haidut has also pointed out that serveral SSRIs can increase allopregnanolone. So, they aren't simply just raising serotonin. The may indeed be doing some positive things, despite the very negative effect of chronically raising serotonin.

I agree , I'd like to see those studies too. But there is something up with shaking amd trauma , theres is even a technique ,I forgot the name , many veterans do it , where you do several exercises to get your body shake uncontrollably and then your body releases trauma apparently .
